Model and actress Audrina Patridge became a famous American TV persona when she was cast in the hit reality TV series, ‘The Hills,’ in 2006. The series was very successful and ran for a total of six seasons, making Patridge a known celebrity in the US.
The actress also appeared in the show’s 11th season, and even though she and her partner Toni Dovolani gave it their best shot, they came in seventh. But hey, Patridge got to be on television again, so it’s all good.
Tonya Harding — Season 26
Former American figure skater Tonya Harding came into the public eye after many years when her film biopic, 'I, Tonya,' hit theaters. The film, released in 2017, was a critical and commercial hit, even taking home an Academy Award.
Tonya took advantage of her resurgence and went on to compete in the 2018 'Dancing With the Stars’ Athletes Edition. She danced with her partner Sasha and actually came in third place!
Evanna Lynch — Season 27
We all fell in love with the quirky Luna Lovegood character in the Harry Potter films. So, when we saw the Irish actress that played her, Evanna Lynch, on 'Dancing With the Stars,' everyone was very excited.
The actress and activist danced on the show’s 27th season with partner Keo Motsepe, and the couple came in third place. The audience was blown away by this Irish belle’s dancing skills, and third place is no joke!
Nev Schulman — Season 29
The popular reality TV show 'Catfish' aired on MTV in 2012 and had a very successful, multiple-season run. Its host, Nev Schulman, definitely gave the show that extra something to keep viewers hooked. And apparently, Nev had another talent that he had kept hidden.
Schulman stunned viewers when he appeared in season 29 of 'Dancing With the Stars' and turned out to be a phenomenal dancer! He came in second place, which is pretty incredible.
Mel C — Season 30
A fantastic ex-Spice Girl to join the dancing competition was Mel B. Sporty Spice appeared on the 30th season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' partnering up with Gleb Savchenko.
Shockingly, although we all expected her to be a great dancer, Mel C was voted off the show pretty quickly, being the fifth competitor to leave. We did, however, love her costumes.
